“My life’s work is about positioning myself to be a midwife to justice in the world. Whether through my work in Admissions, Spiritual Direction, or other healing practices, my desire is to journey with people who are listening deeply to their lives and their connection to the world.”

Chris is a multipotentialite, with a background in Behavioral Science and Education. Following her time as a public school teacher, she lived in Palestine for three years doing advocacy work through Mennonite Central Committee. She serves as a Spiritual Director and a Reiki Practitioner as a way of accompany others in the deep work of healing and being present to life. Chris is also a graduate of Lancaster Theological Seminary, where she focused on biblical studies, while gaining experience in church leadership in the Mennonite context. Chris has hung several art shows, depicting her experience of faith and the world. When she’s not working, Chris spends her time playing with her family, walking in the woods, refurbishing furniture, or talking and laughing with friends.
